I would like your help with billing for the titration visit that will last about half a day for 4 days after the J tube placement with gel solutions of levodopa( carbidopa and levodopa)enteral supsension for Parkinson’s patients. What would be the appropriate codes to use, 99212-99215 or 6499,95999,99199. Also would J7799 be appropriate. Currently there is no codes available for this service. The placement of the tube is done by a GI surgeon and the titratiion by a neurologist. One more thing, if done incident to does the NP need to be certified to provide this prodedure.
Your input is appreciated.

The correct code for billing the enteral suspension is J7799, and for titration service by a neurologist, I am leaning towards CPT 64999. As far as the NP question is concerned, there are NO specific certifications for NPs to become eligible provider for the service, however a neurologist takes the decision for dosage calculation.
